Letters From Family & Friends of Meth Addicts

    Still Grieving

    I was married to a meth addict. I didn't even realize it until after we were married. He was angry, violent, volatile and dangerous. Twice, he attempted to either suffocate or smother me while I was pregnant with our son. The night I was in labor, he slapped me and dragged me across the floor when I found him in bed with another girl. I never spent any time with him after that.

    Our son is now 6 weeks old and his dad has only seen him for about an hour total since his birth. Jason is out of control and even threatening me and our son since I won't let him see the baby for fear of our safety. Meth is not only destroying his life it destroyed our marriage and any hope he has for a chance at a relationship with his son. To him, the drug is the most important thing. He even was going to put our dog in the pound so he wouldn't have to feed her. (Luckily, my mother in law took her in). Each day that goes by I am grateful that I got out alive, safe and that our son was born healthy and beautiful.

    Because of meth, I have to be a single mom. Luckily, I have a wonderful support network of friends and family who are helping me. But in my heart I'm always going to grieve for my husband and what could have been.
